Wife cries after her husband slumped and died after Stoke City equalized against Arsenal FC .

Tragedy struck in Anara, Isiala Mbano
LGA of Imo State on Saturday, August 19, 2017, when a man identified as
Dominic Ejimba slumped and died before he could be rushed to the
hospital.

The
incident happened as Ejimba was watching Arsenal vs. Stoke City match at
a viewing centre. Sources said the deceased, a die-hard Arsenal FC
supporter, could not bear it when his team conceded a goal midway into
the second half of the game. .
He’s
survived by his wife, Mrs. Ndidi Ejimba, and three children – Chidera,
Angel and Rejoice. In a chat with Punchng, Mrs Ejimba said: “My husband
came back to the shop at the end of the first half of the match between
Arsenal and Stoke City to urinate.
He
promised to be back at the end of the match, telling me how his club
would win. But about 20 minutes after he left to watch the second half
of the match, somebody rushed to the house to inform me that he had
slumped at the viewing centre and that he was being rushed to a hospital
where he later died. .
My husband was
neither sick nor showed any sign of being unhealthy. We had plans
together as a family but now death has taken him away. He died less than
one month after we moved into our new house in the village. .
To
imagine that my husband who took good care of us is no longer around is
unbelievable. I don’t know where to go from here because life has not
been the same for us since then,” she said. .
Recounting
to how her late husband loved Arsenal and would do everything to
display his affection for them, the expectant mother said that on a
number of occasions they had had disagreements over his obsession with
the team and all that concerns them. .
She
said no matter how hard anyone tried, Dom was not ready to shift
grounds – it was Arsenal or nothing. “Watching Arsenal play was his
life. He would rebuke and sometimes ignore me whenever I told him to
reduce his obsession. .
He was ready
to chase his customers away and lock up his shop just to watch the team
play. For the 10 years that we were married, he never stopped watching
football matches involving Arsenal.”
